Volume 3 gave some high hopes as it would definitely focus on Warcraft III. As usual the art was amazing and it gave a great overview of the events...an "overview". It also gave some information on the events of World of Warcraft up to the Expansion cataclysm.
Sadly this book felt way to crammed and rush, as some of the details of Warcraft III seemed left out. It felt like much of Northrend campaign was skimmed from the perspective of Warcraft II and World of Warcraft. It would have been a great opportunity to go into the Vyrkul, Frost Dwarves, Earthen, etc. They gave hints of stuff here an there, but it was large just in passing. Plus many of the maps were just page filler, repeated a couple of times...I was hoping for a nice map of Northrend. Also it seems the decision to hurry up, was that the book points out that many other sources tell the tale....and I think they missed the point. Chronicles is a hopefully definitive source for Warcraft history.
I have no idea wait may lie in store for Chronicles 4, but definitely more newer maps and perhaps vaporware lore that was cut from the game?
Heck if it can't be in game....why not here. Hopefully some of the events in Hearthstone will be mentioned, I really wish New Gadgetzan was ingame/lore. It is still a good read, but not as great as the first two.
Chronicle three stepped away from what made the first two volumes great. Namely, it diverges from the lengthy and detailed accounts fans came to expect from the series and instead uses a very shallow, overview style.
In addition to this, very little of the information offerred was not already known to players.
It is for these two reasons I cannot recommend this volume. You will find equal or sadly maybe even greater detail in the cheaper "visual guide" covering the same period and further.
It's still worth a buy if you are a fan.
Starts mostly with Warcraft 3. If you already know the events, there wont be much more added. If you don't like RTS and haven't bothered to play/watch WC3, this willl pretty much explain the story as no book before had.
Once it jumps into post-third war times, I really liked the ordering of events. As a "champion/adventurer/hero" you get to de anything at anytime as long as the game content allows it. On the other hand you might not be much into quests and miss a lot of events. This book records and places most of the events happening during WOW (up to certain point, leaving place for a future 4th book i hope). This way you'll know who did what (champions of course, but often either horde or alliance, sometimes leaded by known characters), and some events you might have missed if you don't quest too hard.
